When there is something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Nicholas Ghostbustin Vatral!

image

Nicholas will help you discover ghosts that you never knew you had with his special Ghost Radar. He will light the dark with his mini Star Wars light saber and back the ghosts into corners with his smelly farts, which I am told the ghosts don’t like the smell, who knew? Once the ghosts are caught Nicholas will secure them in tubberware containers. It is unclear at this time how we will dispose of them.

You have to love the imagination of children.

It’s pretty cold in Michigan today with a few inches of snow. I’m cuddling up with a warm bowl of chili..

Eric and I were driving down to his moms house tonight to pick up the kids, and I decided to see what kind of photos I could get on my phone while driving down the freeway going through downtown Detroit. Of course Eric was driving while I flashed him..I mean while my phones flash was clickity clacken in his eyes. Thank you Eric for your safe driving with spots in your eyes.

These pictures are clearly not clear, but I thought the blured lights looked cool. So roll up your windows, lock your doors and enjoy your tour of Detroit.

My first picture is Ford Field where our Detroit Lions play Football. ROAR!!!

Ford Field

This second picture is the “cool old church” (the name I have given it because I’m not sure of it’s name) that is across from Hockey Town Cafe.

This third picture is the Fox Theater Garage in red lights, and to the right is the Fox Theater sign in blue on the building. Lots of good plays, concerts, and other entertainment has been had there. I wish the Fox would bring back the Radio City Rockettes for Christmas; what an awesome show.

The fourth picture is the lights at the power polution plants in Delray. Now this area is not so pretty during the day nor is the smell nice. and Eric and I have wondered how people can live in their homes around this area and not form third body parts. But the flashing lights are neat in the photo.

This fifth photo is the Ambassador Bridge to Canada.

And the last three photos are the Motor City Casino. They have tons of cool lights. I tried to take a picture of the other building that stands behind this area but the fast drive-by and delay on my camera were not working in my favor. But the lights line the outside of the other building, and they have the lights set in motion and pictures.

This part of the casino was an original bakery and they actually refaced the building but left part of it’s original brick and name exposed, which I think is pretty awesome.

I hope you enjoyed my drive-by night tour of Downtown Detroit.

So when is the best time to “tackle” the grocery store on a day filled with crazy football fans? I really should have went out at 7 a.m. when I woke up. Now I am crazy I know, but really don’t you think that would have been a much more pleasant time to shop, well as pleasant as grocery shopping can be.

Now i’m stuck in the in between of when is everybody’s Superbowl parties starting so the non Superbowl goers can safely shop without being tackled or sidelined in an excruciatingly long check out lane?

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Superbowl 2012 experience!

So the other day I was strolling through the freshly pressed and stumbled into MotherLovely Blog “Love List” http://motherlovely.com/2012/01/23/love-list.  Shannon has some beautiful ideas and pictures and her “Love List” post was about being thankful for all the wonderful whimsical things you have around your home, so I decided I was going to go home and work from her post to find all the wonderful things I wanted to take a picture of and share with you all, so as I strolled through the rooms in my house this was the whimsy I was met with.

 Check out all of my whimsy. Tell me you are jealous of my colorful decorations so strategically placed. I have to admit I work with two awesome decorators. They don’t charge much except food, drink and an occasional cuddle. Though I should pose a few warnings with this free style decorating.

-The whimsical style of free spirit decorating may cause tripping, stumbling, and foot contusions.

-The decorations may easily be lost under couches and other large furniture.

-The decorations are on rotation and will be moved from room to room.

-You may threaten the decorators with a garbage bag full of their decor and a toss to the curb if they get out of control with decorating.

-The decorators may become crabby if you move or clean up their decorations.

-You should consult a professional before allowing the free spirit decorators to take over your home.

I thought this was funny..I celebrated my 24th birthday 10 years ago. However, tonight on my 34th birthday, Nicholas wanted me to have candles on my cake, so daddy was able to rustle up a 2 and a 4 from Nicks past birthday parties. So I recelebrated my 24th birthday tonight, only I don’t seem to feel that young and I think the cake went right to my hips..dang

We had a casualty tonight. Poor Woody lost his head in a slip and fall. Nicholas is devasted and I’m sure sleep time will be interesting tonight with a headless Woody.  RIP Cowboy.
